Alternative to DML Error Logging

I am supposed to catch invalid records in error table with the ORA exception. I am using 10g. Using DML Error logging i cannot catch primary key violations. Using for loop it will be very slow because there are lots of records. How to catch invalid records with the ORA exception
Thanks

The DML error logging functionality is not invoked when:
Deferred constraints are violated.
Direct-path INSERT or MERGE operations raise unique constraint or index violations.
UPDATE or MERGE operations raise a unique constraint or index violation.

  • Limitation on DML error logging

    Can someone please advise what is not supported by DML error logging which was introduced in Oracle 10g?
    one Oracle document says "You cannot track errors in the error logging table for LONG, LOB, or object type columns".
    One says only non-scalar columns, like datatime is not support.
    Another one says it doesn't support nested table.
    Anyone has a more complete list of limitation?
    Thanks!

  • OWB 10gR2 Does not support DML Error Logging

    I've just had this confirmed by support.
    So Oracle's key ETL tool does not support 10gR2s key ETL feature DML Logging.
    So far set based loads on large volume databases you are going to find yourself being tripped over into row by row processing.
    I find this staggering.
    Has anyone else found this?

    Oracle has come back to us saying that
    "DML error logging feature is not supported for distributed DML."

  • Use global temp table for DML error logging

    our database is 11.2.0.4 enterprise edition on solaris 10
    we are wondering if anyone has an opinion of or has done this before, to use a global temp table for DML error logging. We have a fairly busy transactional database with 2 hot tables for inserts. The regular error table created with dbms_errlog has caused many deadlocks which we don't quite understand yet. we have thought using global temp table for the purpose, and that seemed to work, but we can't read error from the GTT, the table is empty even reading from the same session as inserts. Does anyone have an idea why?
    Thanks

    The insert into the error logging table is done with a recursive transaction therefore it's private from your session which is doing the actual insert.

  • ORA-02291 - ORA-02063 on merge with dml error logging through DB link

    Hello all,
    I have 2 DB's and I would like to merge records from A into B with dml error logging through a db link.
    Exemple:
    merge into [email protected]
    using (select ... from A where...)
    when matched then
    when not matched then
    log errors into err$_A reject limit unlimited;
    When I use this, and exception is thrown:
    ORA-02291: integrity constraint (B.constraint_name) violated - parent key not found
    ORA-02063: preceding line from dblink
    I've got no idea of what causes this.
    Could anyone please help me ?
    Thanks !
    Regards,
    TDE.

    Hello damorgan,
    Thanks for your answer.
    I've well understood that its was a foreign key violation, and I guess that's an error in the source: wee make only logical deletes, and I'm quite sure the problem is there.
    Anyway, I really would understand why dml error logging doesn't work in this case.
    I'll investigate and keep you informed.
    Regards.

  • Dml error logging for tables in 10.2.0.5

    Hi experts,
    I have problems loading error records into the shadow table specified in the configuration window for tables. Upon executing the mapping, the execution results show warnings with the error records but these records were not moved to the shadow/error table.
    The actual scenario is: I specified a non-null data rule on the supplier_code column in the supplier table. Inside the mapping where I used this supplier table, I choose the option "Move to error" for this non-null data rule. Upon executing, it seems that owb treats these as warnings and not errors and thus did not propagate them to the error table. Anyone has any suggestion as to how to make use of the error tables in owb?

    DML error logging is generated for set-based PL/SQL mappings if the following conditions are satisfied:
    1. the Error table name property is set for the operator (table/view/mv)
    2. the PL/SQL Generated Mode of the module that contains the mapping is set to 10gR2 and above or Default.
    If the value is set to Default, ensure that location associated with the module has the Version set to 10.2 or above.
    When you use a data object in a mapping, the Error Table Name property for this data object is derived from the shadow table name property of the data object . If you modify the error table name of a data object (using the shadow table name property), you must synchronize all the operators bound to this data object.
    If you are still facing the issue then provide your email and I can send a simple example of data rule mapping in OWB 10.2.0.5

  • DML Error logging table in Set base mode

    Hi all,
    In ETL data errors can be handled thru error logging table. Like this example given in the document-
    INSERT /*+ APPEND PARALLEL */
    INTO sales SELECT product_id, customer_id, TRUNC(sales_date), 3,
    promotion_id, quantity, amount
    FROM sales_activity_direct
    LOG ERRORS INTO sales_activity_errors('load_20040802')
    REJECT LIMIT UNLIMITED
    In this example bulk loading is possible even in the presence of errors. The data errors will go in table 'Sales_activity_errors'.
    I want to generate this kind of coding in OWB in set base mode. For that i have to create a error logging table in target schema. How can I reference this table in a mapping? can it be done by shadow table? It's a very important feature in ETL for bulk loading. Is it available in OWB in set based mode?
    Guyzz please check this out and help me..
    Regards,
    Sumanta

    Hi,
    I am not sure if the DML error logging method is avaliable to be used in OWB 10g R2. You can use the data rule method. Create the data rules on the target table. Deploy it from OWB. Create your mappings and then execute them. Two insert statements will be generated. One for loading the target table for loading records where no rules are violated. The other for loading the <target table>_ERR for loading records where one or more error rules are violated.
    Both these statements do a bulk loading. So your purpose will be solved.
    Again you can use the splitter method that has already been mentioned.

  • DML Error Logging with multiple tables = OALL8

    I have a mapping that, via a splitter, loads 3 tables. This mapping works perfectly.
    Recently we upgraded to OWB 10.2.0.3 so we decided to make use of the new feature of DML error logging. So three error-tables where created and the "error table name" property of each table was entered. When re-creating this mapping in the database the following errors occur: "State of OALL8 is inconsistent", "No more data to read from Socket" (translated from dutch). When removing the value from the "error table name" property again, the mapping can be recreated again.
    What am I doing wrong? Have I run into a bug?

    Which database version are you using?
    Also not sure when exactly the error occurs, when you deploy the map...or when you execute the map? Can you describe as simple a scenario for it to fail that you can?
    I did find a bug 5942415 which was to do with this area..worth checking anyway.
    Cheers

  • DML Error logging with delete restrict

    Hi,
    I am trying to log all DML errors while performing ETL process. We encountered a problem in the process when one of the on delete cascade is missing in child tables but I was curious to know why we got that exception to the calling environment because we are logging all DML errors in err$_ tables. Our expectation is when we get child record found violation then that error will be logged into ERR$_ tables and process will carry on without any interruption but it interrupted in the middle and terminated. I can illustrate with below example
    T1 -> T2 -> T3
    T1 is parent and it is s root
    Create table t1 (id number primary key, id2 number);
    Create table t2(id number references t1(id) on delete cascade, id2 number);
    create table t3 (id number references t2(id)); -- Missing on delete cascade
    insert into t1 as select level, level from dual connect by level < 20;
    insert into t2 as select level, level from dual connect by level < 20;
    insert into t3 as select level from dual connect by level < 20;
    exec dbms_errlog(t1);
    exec dbms_errlog(t2);
    exec dbms_errlog(t3);
    delete from t1 where id = 1 log errors into err$_t1 reject limit unlimited;   -- Child record found violation due to t3 raised but I am expecting this error will be trapped in log tables.
    delete from t2 where id =1 log errors into err$_t2 reject limit unlimited; -- Got the same error child record violation. My expectation error will be logged into log tables.
    I am using Oracle 11gR2.
    Also, Please let me know if there is any restrictions to use DML error logging in DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE.
    Please advise
    Thanks,
    Umakanth

    What is the error you want me to fix? Missing on delete cascade?
    The Code you posted has multiple syntax errors and can't possibly run. You should post code that actually works.
    My expectation is all the DML errors will be logged into error logging tables even if it is child record found violation.
    delete from t1 where id = 1 log errors into err$_t1 reject limit unlimited;  -- Child record found violation due to t3 raised but I am expecting this error will be trapped in log tables.
    delete from t2 where id =1 log errors into err$_t2 reject limit unlimited; -- Got the same error child record violation. My expectation error will be logged into log tables.
    DML error logging logs DATA. When you delete from T1 there is an error because the T2 child record can NOT be deleted. So the T1 row that was being deleted is logged into the T1 error log table. The request was to delete a T1 row so that is the only request that failed; the child rows in T2 and T3 will not be put into log tables.
    Same when you try to delete from T2. The T3 child record can NOT be deleted so the T2 row that was being deleted is logged into the T2 error log table.
    The exceptions that occur are NOT logged, only the data that the DML could not be performed on.
    After I fixed your code your example worked fine for me and logged into the DML error tables as expected. But I wasn't doing it from a client.
